Help Identify These Plants Please!

Hello,

Could you help me find out what these are? I recently took over an allotment that has seen a lot better days. As a relatively young plot holder (24) i don't really have the know how to recognize some of the left behind plants there.

After to talking to other plot holders I have found out that the former owner used to grow a lot more flowers than vegetables, consequently there is sort of a wildflower corner where i found these...

    Hello and welcome OutwardMango image

    Afraid I can't make those links work - to post a pic you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.  If you're having trouble making it work let us know.

    Or put them on a photo-hosting site and post the link image

  • Oh that's a shame, I did use the green tree icon and used the insert image URL option, this time I'll just upload them see if it works, thanks for letting me know.

    Very odd looking things aren't they!  The only thing they remind me of is some sort of giant Iris because of their form.

    They look to me like Iris sibirica - I have some in my garden - they can grow quite tall - beautiful flowers

    Iris, but I don't think its sibirica

    They look like the ones that are sold as Dutch irises

  • Ahh brilliant thank you! Anyone know if they can handle being moved very well? if not I'll just leave them they look very nice.

    Is the one in the middle below an iris as well, there are other iris scattered about the plot.

    P.S thanks again!!

    They'll be flowering soon and won't enjoy being moved.

    The others are a different iris, probably a bearded iris, could be any of a variety of colours, some are lovelyimage

  • Brilliant! I'll post some pictures when they do.
